Caption: Against the blue of the Atlantic Ocean, space shuttle Atlantis with its crew of seven rises majestically from Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center to start the STS-122 mission to the International Space Station. The launch was the third attempt for Atlantis since December 2007 to carry the European Space Agency's Columbus laboratory to the International Space Station. During the 11-day mission, the crew's prime objective was to attach the laboratory to the Harmony module, adding to the station's size and capabilities.
